Affiliate Blogger Pro Community is a an affiliate marketing training platform run by Rosalind Gardner who has been in the affiliate marketing business since 1998 before affiliate marketing become known. She started working as an air traffic controller but left that career behind to pursue affiliate marketing. She has earned herself the reputation of “Queen of Affiliate Marketing”. Affiliate Blogger Pro promotes itself by saying you can learn from the Queen of Affiliate Marketing. Rosalind Gardner is no doubt very successful. She has written a popular book titled Successful Affiliate Handbook which has received high marks from industry leaders such as Brain Marcus with Google Affiliate Network. It is over 250 pages with the latest edition being released a few months ago on April 26, 2015 so it is obviously up-to-date.
As with all of my product reviews, I provide thorough and well researched information so that you can make the best decision for yourself, because only you know what will work for you. I have to say that I am impressed with Rosalind Gardner’s credentials and amount of free information that she provides through her blog. You can tell she is truly passionate about teaching others what she has learned in the numerous years she has been learning about affiliate marketing. She is very honest with you in her description of how to be successful at affiliate marketing. She tells you upfront that this is not a get-rich-quick scheme like other scams will try and sell you on such as Excel Cash Flow, one the largest scams out there. Rosalind is sincere and gives you a honest down-to-earth approach. Rosalind has a blog called Net Profits Today where she shares some incredible insights into Affiliate Marketing.
- Rosalind is honest and down-to-earth and tells you upfront that this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Affiliate marketing takes much work and patience and Rosalind tells you this right from the get-go
- The price is inexpensive – only $27/month – that is cheaper than the majority of other programs out there including my #1 recommendation.
- There are NO upsales and this is a HUGE benefit to this program, because nearly all of the affiliate marketing training platforms out there have one upsales after another.
- The training is step-by-step
- There are 10 Module Training Programs with over 200 tutorials with practical tips
- Almost 200 video tutorials
- Has an active community forum
- The lessons can be printed
- Has a generous affiliate program offering a 50% commission
- There are quizzes at the end of each tutorial to test your knowledge – I don’t know of any other program that does that, although, I get text anxiety so I would probably not do well even though I know the material. 🙂
- There is no free trial period – this is a BIGGIE for me!! I feel that if someone believes strong enough in their program they should offer a free trial period to see if it is right for you. My #1 recommendation does offer a free starter membership allowing you to remain a starter member as long as you want without going premium. You only go premium when and if you are ready. You will not be asked for a credit card unless you choice the premium membership. Plus, you get two free websites:
- No Live Chat
- No free websites included in the membership
- Web hosting is not included in the membership
- No free keyword research tool to help with SEO
- Technical support is only available via email. There is no number you can call to get immediate help.
WHO IT IS FOR?
Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind is anyone who is brand new to affiliate marketing. Once you learn the basic ropes, however, of affiliate marketing you may need to look elsewhere for additional support and training. I definitely recommend it for newbies only.
There are both textual and video tutorials available in addition to printable lessons. You will be walked step-by-step with a community of other members who will help you out. I have free both textual and video computer tutorials on this site you can check out to include basics of HTML and a Beginner’s Guide to WordPress. The image below is from the squeeze page pf Affiliate Blogger Pro and lists everything you get with your $27 monthly membership.
Technical support is available through email only. There is no live chat nor a phone number to call should you need immediate assistance.
I think the price is reasonable enough for Affiliate Blogger Pro. It is completely wrong to try and gauge you for as much as they get out of you and Affiliate Blogger Pro definitely does not do this. I would say that Affiliate Blogger Pro is completely legit. However, I think you could get a bigger bang for your buck by going with my #1 recommendation – Wealthy Affiliate, because although WA is a little more expensive, the amount of training you get not just from the owners but from the community members too is more in depth and covers more territory. In addition, with Wealthy Affiliate, web hosting is included in the membership as well as two free websites. With Affiliate Blogger Pro you will need to review my list of web hosting companies to decide which one is best for you and factor that in your monthly business building budget. You will not get ripped off by going with Affiliate Blogger Pro, but there is a better choice. See my chart below:
I know on my chart that I give Affiliate Blogger Pro a 7 despite there being only 5 check marks, but I give additional points to Rosalind Gardner’s system because she really is sincere about helping others become successful and is running a completely legitimate program which is more than I can say for so many programs out there these days.
Thank you for checking out my review today of Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind Gardner. I would love to hear from my readers. Please leave a comment or question below and I will respond shortly.
Thanks, Really Love to see your great information shared in this article. This article will really help to newbies who are interested in learning Affiliate Marketing. And I love all of your affiliate marketing tutorials.
Thank you so much Mukhtiar for your kind words and for stopping to check out my affiliate marketing tutorials. I hope you find what you are looking for.
This program seems to have some merits. I suppose any of these membership sites that provides value to our learning experience is worthwhile in some respects. It is a matter of personal choice, weighing up what one needs in the way of education, support, services, what the respective choices offer and how much is it worth to me. Wealthy Affiliate seems to offer a lot more, but it is more expensive. The FREE option at WA makes it worthy of investigation.
I am a member of her blog and I do think she is very much legit and so is her program.
I really like your number one recommendation and I believe it is the way to go for anyone who is really serious and wants to put the times and commitment in to make this work.
Thanks for the review and keep the great articles coming!
Thank you for visiting my website today. I really enjoyed reading through Rosalind Gardner’s blog too and I like what she had to say. I have followed some of her advice and I think she is right on target with many things. Absolutely she is legit. She is listed on this website as one of my legit reviews.
However, as you and I agree, she is not my #1 recommendation which I believe is the way to go if you are truly serious about learning a full time profitable business online.
I am glad you enjoyed the review Shawn.
I really enjoyed reading your review. It is the first time I hear about this program, but like others have been saying it would be one I would consider, based on your review, if I hadn’t signed up with Wealthy Affiliate already.
It really shows people how much Wealthy Affiliate offers even though it might be 20 bucks more a month. But if you are going to learn how to make a full time income online, you do need all the training and support you can get. Thats why I am happy at Wealthy Affiliate.
I am glad you enjoyed reading my review of Rosalind Gardner / Affiliate Blogger Pro Review. This is a completely legitimate online opportunity. The problem is you will need to purchase a web hosting package and pay a monthly hosting fee on top of the membership fees and the training may not be enough once you get the hang of affiliate marketing.
And I agree with you that Wealthy Affiliate is a better choice because although it is more expensive than Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind Gardner, you get more included with your WA membership. Please come back and visit soon.
Nice post on Rosalind Gardner’s affiliate blogger pro community website and program. When one has been with the Wealthy Affiliate community and had so much training at my finger tips, its hard to see the limited offering of any other program as a good thing at all. It just seems limited.
Thanks for the insight to yet another senseless program and website
Thank you for reading my review of Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind Gardner. I agree when compared to Wealthy Affiliate, nothing else can come close. I hope to see you again soon.
What a great post about the program Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind Gardner. It was very thorough and had so much precision. You are right it is possible to earn a living online in an honest and legitimate way, however, there are many scams that you need to look out for, such as Excel Cash Flow.
If I weren’t already a member of Wealthy Affiliate, I would have signed up with Affiliate Blogger Pro. They do offer an excellent service. I appreciate your comments on some of the other programs in your Product Reviews. I will be reading through some of them. Have you ever heard of a program called Affilorama? I was wondering what you think of them!
Thank you for reading my review today of Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind Gardner. In all of my product reviews, I try and be as thorough as possible and provide my readers as much detail as possible. There are many different opinions and needs as well as learning levels and I want to show respect by taking all of those factors into consideration.
I would have to agree with you that if I too were not already a member and now, Ambassador, of Wealthy Affiliate and was brand new to affiliate marketing, I might be inclined to give Affiliate Blogger Pro a try, because I can tell Rosalind Gardner, the owner and creator, is honest and wants to truly people do what she has learned to do. That is a rare quality.
Please enjoy reading through my product reviews. I am sure you will find some interesting ideas and programs out there. I have broken them down into Legit Reviews, Scam Reviews and Web Hosting Reviews.
I have written a review on Affilorama and would love for you to check it out. This website will grow and as it matures, I will be adding additional reviews to it. So please come and visit.
Thanks for the well-thought out review! of Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind! The program looks worth it, but I still think the monthly fee is a little high considering you do not get web hosting included nor at least one free website. I like programs where everything you need is included in the price and you do not have to go outside of the program to find everything you need to create a an online business. I want a place that is a one stop shop for all you need to include an opportunity to try it for free to decide if this is the right path for you as well as a free website and a hosting package included as well as live chat because there will always be questions. This is definitely not a scam from what I’ve seen and separates itself from the programs that simply don’t work like so many of those scammy crooks out there.
Having no trial is a shame, do they offer money back within 30 days if I don’t like the program?
Good Day Alec!
Thank you for reading my review of Affiliate Blogger Pro. You are right about it being a shame that there is not trial. Affiliate Blogger Pro does have a thirty day money back guarantee. I listed that under the PROs section of my review.
And I could not agree with you more about wanting a program that has a one stop shop set up. Wealthy Affiliate is such a program. You have up to 25 websites hosted through Wealthy Affiliate membership combined with loads of training modules and two different types of training – one to teach you how to create a niche website and one to help promote Wealthy Affiliate.
That being said, I do think Affiliate Blogger Pro is completely legitimate and gives the brand new beginner to affiliate marketing a good idea of what to expect in the field of affiliate marketing.
Thank you for stopping by to check out my review. Be sure to read my other product reviews I have here on this site.
Hi Steph Hill, this is the first time I came to know this affiliate blogger pro community. When mind started visualizing it with Wealthy Affiliate, It has some less benefits as comparing to Wealthy Affiliate. I agree with your CONS, if the owner of affiliate blogger pro provide free access or some trial, it would better.
Overall its membership is quite less. And you have written well comparison to help people making decision which program will more benefits for their investment. Thanks for sharing Steph!
Absoultely about a program not offering a free trial or at least a two week trial for a dollar which is also common among the affiliate training programs that I review. With the cost of the membership being as reasonable as it is at $27 per month, why not give new members a free trial? I do like her approach, though, and Rosalind does seem genuinely caring about wanting to teach you how to be an affiliate marketer.
I am glad you liked my comparison with Wealthy Affiliate. I wanted to give as much detail as I could and lay out the benefits as best as I could. The advantages of what you get with Wealthy Affiliate to include two free websites, free hosting and more in depth training make Wealthy Affiliate at $47 a better buy that Affiliate Blogger Pro at $27 per month.
Thank you for visiting today. Please come back soon.
Very informative review. I was a member of ABP a long time ago. I liked it, but didn’t know enough. Back then, I thought her platform was confusing. Perhaps she’s changed it. Rosalind was very helpful to her students.
I am very happy where I am at Wealthy Affiliate and am making good progress. I appreciate the review, Steph.
Thank you for the reply. I am super happy to hear from former customers of Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind Gardner. I have heard that the platform is a bit confusing and I too do not know if she has changed it based on feedback or not. I have read some of your blog articles and she certainly knows her stuff. My question comes to why she does not offer a trial period because affiliate marketing is not for everyone as I am sure you know.
Thank you for your comment. I am hoping you come back again real soon.
I am glad to hear from a former member of Affiliate Blogger Pro by Rosalind Gardner. Thank you for visiting. I have heard the platform was confusing. But like you said, maybe it has been updated recently based on feedback. Please come back and visit again soon.
